Ref: PTR18/167

Location: Brecon, South Wales

Description: Exceptional opportunity for a suitably experienced and self motivated CNC Machinist to progress their career within a dynamic and highly professional solutions provider to the materials handling and automation sector.

Salary: £28k + OTE + generous benefits + structured career progression scope + training

Our client has been established for almost half a century and specialise in the design, manufacture and installation of a range of bespoke and modular automation and materials handling solutions for supply to food, pharmaceutical, distribution, recycling and baggage handling customers across the globe.  

As a result of continued success and an ongoing programme of strategic growth, they are now seeking to recruit an experienced and highly self-motivated CNC Machinist to oversee the workload activities of a busy CNC machine shop, and to undertake the machining of a wide range of components including shafts, wheels and spring clips to drawing specifications whilst meeting procedural guidelines and ensuring compliance with H&S requirements at all times. 

You will produce various components within strict timescale constraints and achieve maximum usage of machine capabilities leaving a finished component requiring minimal manual finishing. You will prepare and maintain CNC machines to required specification and procedural guidelines and undertake a range of additional duties including tool setting, using CNC Lathes to produce steel shafts and CNC Milling machines to produce component parts to required quality standards, machine CNC holding fixtures and drill & tap to drawing specification whilst ensuring compliance at all times with relevant health and safety. 

Utilising your own experience to provide guidance and to mentor apprentice machinists, you will champion continuous improvement activities across the business and encourage the implementation and sustainment of change across the machine shop – able to work autonomously and as part of a team and comfortable in ordering parts and undertaking inventory control and stock management activities as required.

To be considered for this varied and challenging role it is envisaged that the successful candidate will ideally be qualified as a time served apprentice machinist or toolmaker and demonstrate previous CNC machine experience including part programming, tool set up and basic machine maintenance gained within an engineering environment. 

You will essentially be conversant with engineering drawings and possess comprehensive Turning and Milling machine experience, and demonstrate a flexible approach as required. You will demonstrate a self-motivated and positive “can do” attitude and essentially will have a high level of attention to detail and accuracy.

If you are interested in working for a company who invest in the training and development of their employees and would enjoy working for a highly motivated company within the materials handling solutions industry, this could be the opportunity for you.
